I'm 32 years old, living back in New Mexico after living in Michigan for about 3 years (LOVED it there!!!)
I just bought a Kitchen Aid Stand mixer so I am trying all kinds of new recipes for the first time! Mostly baking, which I am learning is a total science.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking dinner, that's when I try to mix things up a little bit. I've gotten pretty good at making baked macaroni and cheese, homemade spaghetti sauce, homemade chicken noodle soup, beef stroganoff, and tacos!
My favorite family cooking traditions
-Getting together with my family to form a "human assembly" line, making about 8 dozen pierogi (Polish Dumplings) for Christmas Eve, also cooking adventures with my boyfriend.
My cooking triumphs
I've become pretty good at tweaking recipes here and there to suit my tastes, and also adding special ingredients to "store bought" things to make it seem more home-made.
After much trials and tribulations, I think I have perfected my macaroni and cheese recipe! (now, only if I would remember to WRITE IT DOWN, haha)
My cooking tragedies
I've melted plastic spatulas, had a Pyrex pan shatter into a million peices in the sink, cooked some very questionable turkey burgers, and I've baked cookies that tasted like a spoonful of flour in your mouth. Eeech! I'm sure many many more to come!
